Diminutive and dark, Danji is no ordinary Korean restaurant. Helmed by talented chef Hooni Kim, this Hell's Kitchen spot is a standout among the rows of restaurants that attract theater-going tourists in the neighborhood. That's because Kim's take on Korean cuisine is inventive and inspired. The menu is split in two, and both sides contain a number of winnning dishes. Start with the scallion and pepper pancake and the trio of kimchi from the "traditional" side, then set your taste buds singing with Korean chicken wings and unctuous pork belly sliders from the "modern" side of the menu. Then count your blessings that you're not eating a mediocre meal like the rest of the out-of-town visitors in the neighorhood.
